Accessing Government Records

Government records acquired by the Provincial Archives may be loaned to the original ministry, agency, etc. for research or reference purposes on a short-term basis.  In some instances, where the material is fragile or has restrictions, it must be viewed at the Archives.

All government personnel must be authorized by their Deputy Minister or Chief Executive Officer prior to accessing the records.

A Control and Request Form must be used and is available from the Appraisal and Acquisition Unit or the Reference Services Unit.  

Please contact the Appraisal and Acquisition Unit at 306-787-6985 or
